    Teams that are enraged they didn't get in....

    You know every year, we hear stories, interviews, read articles, etc....about the teams that had their "bubbles burst" by not getting in. Let me be the first to say, I DON'T CARE. If you were remotely good enough to win this thing, you'd be in. You had the chance to get yourselves in, and you failed. Move on, get better, see you next year. There, that's all.

    I agree to an extent but coaches can keep/lose their job over getting in or not. UAB played one ranked team all year and lost by 20+.

    Seth Greenberg whining about Va Tech not getting in is only matched by One Shining Moment in terms of NCAA tradition.

    The thought of a 98 team tournament is absurd. This tournament has seven teams with 14 losses which is the most ever. I'm sure if that would have come to fruition that we'd still have some whiners.

    Could not have said it better myself. This is one of my favorite times of the year with the exception of the cry babies. I thought that was why we went to 68 teams so we didn't have to hear this crap but oh well. This is exactly why going to a play off in college football would solve nothing. Your still have teams whine about being left out.

    Perhaps in honor of Seth, it should be One Whining Moment.

    Who cares how you people feel, walk in our shoes and then lets see if you "cry". I know sports and you cannot convince me about my school, I don't know enough about the others, but I moved on, but its interesting when you read/see experts saying nice things about your team who in the history of the NCAA a team who went 12-4 in a major conference not get in. Again, your entitled and so are we if you don't like what it written about a team move on.

    Our kids wanted to get in, but didn't, coach is a good guy at a tough school with a small tradition of basketball, in the decade of the 80s made the final 16 more than any school, but thats about it. Don't want to see us cry, don't click. But start a thread about it.

    Just read this thread to my wife, "she said classy post by some people". She is a Cardinal fan and I'm pulling for both U of L/UK to go to the final four. I don't like kicking people when they are hurting, but thats me.

    Bama should have been in...UAB not...that cat must have some good pictures of somebody.

    On the other hand I think Seth should go Sheen on the NCAA....
